420 Drug-Impaired Driving Enforcement Campaign

420 DRUG-IMPAIRED DRIVING ENFORCEMENT CAMPAIGN - APRIL 16-21, 2021

4:20, or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) is slang in cannabis culture for the consumption of cannabis, especially smoking cannabis around the time 4:20 p.m. (or 16:20 in 24-hour notation) and also refers to cannabis-oriented celebrations that take place on annually on April 20 (which is 4/20 in U.S. form).

The sobering fact is that drug-impaired driving contributed to 9% of all 2020 Missouri traffic fatalities. Preliminary data for 2020 indicates 94 people were killed and 181 seriously injured in crashes that involved at least one drug-impaired driver. 

Many drug-impaired drivers are under the age of 21. Drug-impaired drivers under the age of 21 were involved in seven fatal and 14 serious injury crashes in 2020. There were seven people killed and 20 seriously injured in these crashes.
